This report from The Beacon Collaborative looks at the role that celebration and promotion of philanthropy can play to encourage greater giving. It concludes that the UK has a unique culture of giving. By reinforcing the sense that giving is a team effort, we can encourage more wealthy individuals on their giving journey. To do this, we should:
- Recognise and celebrate the role British philanthropists play as partners in the wider effort for transformational societal change.
- Support philanthropists to learn directly from each other’s experience.
- Communicate the value that philanthropy brings to society through advocacy and evidence.
- Assist the wider sector to support philanthropy through greater coordination.
